Poor Maya has been out of sorts since Charlie, the cocker spaniel puppy joined our family. She usually stays upstairs in the “no Charlie zone” but when she hears me down in my scraproom (in the semi-finished basement) she bravely risks passage through the main floor, scurries through the cat door down to visit me (leaving Charlie’s head poking through the cat door, wondering what that white blur was). And although Maya, who is half Siamese, half Himalayan, is typically a little standoffish, there is something about being surrounded by Prima flowers, Distress inks, and Cuttle bug folders, that makes her the most lovey-dovey cat you’ve ever met. It seems like no matter what I’m doing, she’s extremely interested in it and wanting (read: demanding) endless attention. Last week I snapped a few photos of her hanging out in my scraproom while I worked on my Halloween paper bag album (as usual, click the photo for a bigger picture).
I used glimmer mist, buttons, distress ink, and stickles on the relevant journalling strips and simulated Maya’s white cat hairs using strands of embroidery floss.
My makeshift photo studio is in my scraproom too, so in true Maya-form, she had to be a part of the photo shoot of her layout!
